Joined stoutgat, have tried numerous other sites before finding stoutgat. (A) it's a purely SA site so no contacts from ppl across the Atlantic. (B) yes obviously they have changed their policy, you join for free but in order to contact others you need to pay, big like as this eliminates receiving dubious contacts who entice you to join other sites (c) strict security measures in place, had to wait 2hrs after payment for them to authenticate my payment before I could contact others, again in my eyes a big plus as again eliminates scammers. (D) all photos have to be approved and authenticated, no fake profiles. (E) you control who can contact you, so no contact from people whom you have no desire to be in contact with. Overall happy to be a paying member of this site.
Only contact those who meet your criteria
Plenty of active profiles
Would like a section "More about me" where you can give a short bio to attract others.
Profile photos a bit small to view easy
Thank you for your suggestion. We will consider it.
